The Rennes-le-Chateau Research and Resource page have added yet another seminal documentary for your viewing pleasure: The Lost Treasure of Jerusalem:
In 1972, British script writer Henry Lincoln introduced the mystery of Rennes-le-Château to the English speaking world through his documentary The Lost Treasure of Jerusalem. It immediately created a storm of publicity and eventually led to the production of a 2nd documentary The Priest the Painter and the Devil in 1974 and the Shadow of the Templars in 1979. This last documentary was already co-researched by Michael Baigent which later led to Henry, Michael and the late Richard Leigh writing the international bestseller Holy Blood Holy Grail.
And as we know, Holy Blood Holy Grail went on to influence many more works of (apparent) non-fiction, and fiction as well – top of the pile, sales-wise, being Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code. Here’s your chance to take a look back and see where it all started (at least in English-language countries).
